Creamy Dijon Chicken



Cook time: 25 Min  Prep time: 5 Min  Serves: 4
Ingredients
2 lg boneless skinless chicken breasts cut in half lengthwise to make 4 thinner chicken cutlets
kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp butter, unsalted
1 md onion sliced thin
2 clove garlic minced
1 c low sodium chicken broth
2 Tbsp dijon mustard
½ c heavy cream
1 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves
1 Tbsp fresh rosemary chopped
1 c frozen sweet peas (optional)
Directions
1. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Season with a generous amount of kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper. Melt the butter and heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Brown the chicken on both sides until the chicken is cooked through; about 3 minutes per side. Plate and cover to keep warm.
2. Heat a little more oil in the skillet if needed and cook the onion until soft and lightly browned. Reduce the heat to low and add the garlic to the skillet with the onions cooking for 1 minute while stirring constantly.
3. Add the chicken broth to the skillet with the onions and garlic. Stir and scrape the bottom of the skillet to loosen the brown bits. Simmer for 3-4 minutes. Whisk in the Dijon mustard and cream. Simmer for 2-3 minutes. Add the peas, fresh thyme, and fresh rosemary. Simmer for 2-3 minutes. Return the cooked chicken back to the sauce and simmer until warm.
4. Ladle the sauce over the chicken and serve over egg noodles or mashed potatoes
